My trip to Paris was early, early spring. The week just prior, the weather was beautiful with the high of 75. The next week and the week of my travel, it was much cooler and you guessed it, rain!
I still stand by my belief that a dreary day in Paris is better than a sunny day in Oklahoma. After all, Paris is always a good idea!
In the middle of the trip, there was a bright sunny day that had the Eiffel Tower written all over it. It was perfect weather to go all the way to the top! From the looks at the line, everyone else thought so too.
So, here I was standing in line underneath the tower and I look up and just basked in the beautiful sun that barely crested the iron structure. The composition of the tower and sun paired with the blue skies and the surrealism of actually making it to a place on my bucket list was almost more than could handle.
Before going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, security makes sure you are carrying no sharp objects. I thought it was quite comical how many forks humanity is walking around with. 😉 The corkscrews I can get on board with, after all, it’sParis, but forks? Remember this photo, if you make it to the exhibit you will be seeing this again.
There is a glass floor halfway to the top. If you are scared of heights, it’s a doozy to walk onto. These two tourists laid down and took a selfie! I love how she pretended to be frightened by putting her hand up to her mouth! Again, this is just one of the times I noticed people weren’t scared to do their thing while capturing their selfies!
Of course, one must take full advantage of the well-marked places to kiss. It is the place of light and love.
Everyone is invited to attend a fun display of my work, The Narcissique Touriste, on Monday, August 2nd at the Broken Arrow Historical Museum, 400 South Main Street, Broken Arrow, OK from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. You, too, can visit pictures of these same iconic vistas in the gallery, and are encouraged to take your own selfies at this “stay and play” exhibit.
